Baucus Urges EPA For Better Communication In Libby
Montana’s U.S. Senator Max Baucus says a new report released Friday by the Office of the Inspector General for the Environmental Protection Agency shows the need for improved communication between the EPA and the community regarding asbestos exposure. Baucus and Senator Tester requested the investigation last year to help local families and businesses better understand the superfund cleanup efforts and the risks related to potential asbestos exposure. Baucus and Tester also sent a letter Friday to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson urging the agency to implement the coherent communication plan recommended by the inspector general to keep residents in Libby in the loop on the latest data and ongoing cleanup strategy.
